I’m collaborating with photographer Don House on a series of images taken in and around the Wichita Mountains in southwest Oklahoma. Don has created classic black-and-white portraits with his Hasselblad. I have been working on color images of human interactions with the landscape. We are at work on a book of photography and essays that will also feature poems by Sy Hoahwah.
Images from the series premiered at a two-person exhibition in November 2015 in Fayetteville, Arkansas. A catalogue for the exhibition is available via mail order. We gave two artist talks; Chris Engholm created a video summary of the first one.
Our next exhibition of the Wichitas project will take place at the Argenta Branch Library in North Little Rock from May 19 to June 9, 2017. It will then travel to the Winthrop Rockefeller Institute on Petit Jean Mountain for a show in August.
We plan to take the exhibition to additional venues in Arkansas, Oklahoma, and beyond.
Two of my photos from this project (shown below) were juried into the 58th Delta Exhibition at the Arkansas Arts Center in Little Rock. Blue Goose Station was also included in the 41st PhotoSpiva Annual National Photography Competition. The show ran from March 4 to April 30, 2017.
The 57th Delta Exhibition (2015) featured another photo from the series:
